I am sort of wondering why. Wouldn't /usr/local perhaps be the more correct location? Or, since this is Mac OS X, what about Application Support? I am not saying /etc is wrong, I have never likes the location of "/" at all. I do think it should live where other applications of the same do, or, wherever Apple's guidelines state with regard to these files. I currently have zero third party files in /etc, though I use MacPorts, meaning everything I do end up in /opt/local. I worry that a major system update from Apple may be very aggressive and modify things in /etc in a way that would break lbackup. -- Scott * If you contact me off list replace talklists@ with scott@ * _______________________________________________ lbackup-discussion mailing list http://www.lbackup.org Change options or unsubscribe : http://lbackup.org/mailing_lists
